Triple J Unearthed High winners (2009) Howl have decided to change their name, because no one can find them on the internetz. â€œHowl may well be the most unGoogle-able artist name since [inaugural triple j Unearthed High winners] Is,â€ said a press release from management.
They are also frequently mistaken for a doom metal act from America and an alternative band from Norway.
The young Ballarat group will now be known as Hunting Grounds.
I googled it and couldn’t find them.
Oh well, at least their band doesn’t suck.
